Description: The Hudson Valley Visiting Pet Program presents this workshop for those who wish to work with their animal to help children learn to read. Librarians, school teachers, and school administrative staff who want to learn more about the program and how it could enhance the reading curriculum in their library or school, are also encouraged to attend. This workshop is for humans only; training for pets is done separately. Despite its name, the program accepts dogs, cats, birds, rabbits, guinea pigs, hamsters, and even horses. There are more than 20 reading assistance teams in the Hudson Valley Visiting Pet Program including in Orange, Rockland, and Bergen counties.
